THE STRIKE AT
SSELTON SCHOOL
By JULIA F. D2AK2
(Copyright, by Joaepb. B. Bowleg.)
Ever tinea Maggie McClure had en-
the Skelton school had bees ruled by a
lady principal. While she held In her
hand a' scepter, she so skillfully con
ealed It with feminine arts and charms
that not one of , her little subjects
dreamed he was anything but a free
and independent republican.
It had happened that the powers that
"be had decreed that this dearly beloved
wlelder of the scepter should be dis
placed by a common man, who had yet
to learn that the art of concealing his
scepter was , of more value with these
email subjects than many high-sounding
titles.
Now Miss Mulllns was round and
rosy or race, witn tenaxiuy curls tnai
"knew not the curling iron. Miss Mul
llns. also had an extremely popular
way of making one so happy that one
forgot one's skill in making spit balls.
Consequently when the news was
-spread abroad that Miss Mulllns had
been displaced by a common man
-every citizen and , citlzeness within
reach of the beams of her merry eyes
. felt It -a personal grievance; and there
was drafted an imposing document to
be submitted to the principal, threat
ening dire but somewhat Indefinite
things.
The responsibility of leadership wai
weighing upon Maggie's youthful shoul
ders, for it was Maggie who had labor
iously drafted the document of pro
test, with frequent trips to dictionary,
And it was Maggie who had insisted on
an organization of the grieved one3
and bad made them solemnly promlso
to do great deeds out of loyalty to Miss
Mulllns. Consequently, as a matter of
course, It was Maggie who had been
unanimously elected as the leader of
the new union.
One morning when Principal Hefter
mounted the steps to the school build
ing, a crowd of defiant-faced young
sters met him. They stood at the en
trance of yard and doors, self-constituted
pickets, labeled in gaudy letters:
"'School Boys and Girls Union." "We
demand the return of the most popular
Miss Mulllns in the Skelton school."
As the. principal put his foot on tbe
top step and adjusted his glasses to
"COWARDS'."
his somewhat near-sighted ' eyes, a
stalwart, red-cheeked maiden, with a
diminutive Scotch laddie clinging to
Zher skirts, called:
. "All ready, kids," giving the signal
-with a dramatic wave of her arm. As
with one voice the crowd responded:
"'Down with all tyrants, from Caesar
to Hefter. We demand our rights
Give us Miranda Mulllns or give us
leath."
"What's the matter with Miranda
Mulllns?" queried the leader's voice.
"She's all right!" came the answer in
..high-keyed chorus.
"And what's the matter with Mister
XJr aaraln Innnlrad
their leader In hysterical accents.
"He's all wrong!" was the answer
thrown back 'from the childish throats
In a growl of disapproval.
When the bell rang, ten - minutes
later, the crowd outside dissolved Into

oughly was the work done that when
the bell ceased ringing less than 25
.pupils were at their desks, while out

hundred were singing songs of tri

' In serried ranks they formed. Mag

"Cowards! Will ye desert ' your
cause becausa of a few blue-coats? Re
member the brave deeds of your fore
fathers, and stand .. fast! Forward
march now, double quick, to yonder
shelters, where we will ', prepare to
meet the enemy," and the . pointed
tragically toward a large barn at the
rear of the school-house.
Under the stimulus of the words of
their : leader, the forces ' rallied suf
ficiently to reach the hospitable roof
of Widow Flaherty's barn. Widow Fla
herty, who lived in the upper story of
the barn, was a devout admirer of the
departed Miss Mulllns, and, Maggie
knew, would be a valuable addition to
her forces.
When the policemen made their way
to the temporary fortress, with many
sly Jokes and laughs at the easy , task
before them, they met with locked
doors below and a vigorous response
from the upper window:
And don't ye dare set a foot on me
premises, not a one of ye, and if my
voice can't make it plain to ye, I've
tomethln' that will talk to ye'll under-
ttan' it," and the held to their view a
kettle of boiling hot water.
The arguments of the widow proved
unanswerable, and the policemen de
parted. '
The victory, was won, but alas tor
the way of great leaders. In the cor
ner of Mrs. Flaherty's 'barn, as the
November afternoon darkened into
evening, tat the victorious leader of
the hundred, her face burled in her
apron, weeping with a woe not to be
comforted. What cared she that to
night her name would be upon the
tongue of every boy and girl in the
ward, that even now the newsboys in
the streets were crying her as the
chief attraction of the evening pap3r?
These thlng3 were as nothing, for
awful thought Roderick Dhu, the idol
of her heart, was lost In that fearful
moment when the advance of the en
emy seemed to endanger her cause,
she had dropped the hand of the in
fant Roderick, and in the confusion
which followed he had strayed away.
It grew still darker. Something
must be done, for Roderick Dhu feared
the dark shadows of the night, and It
was drawing near to that delicious
hour when he was wont to lay his lit
tle head upon Maggla's devote 1 shoul
der and start on his Journey t) Slum
berland. As she hurried past the desertel
school-house, she bethought herself
that' she had forgotten to search thit
building.
Was mat a light at the end of the
hall? Probably the Janitor, still at
work. )
Through the glass daor Maggie
peeped. She drew back in dismay.
She had quite forgotten th.t this was
the ofhee of the despised principal.
How the hot blood did pump itself up
from her valiant heart, a3 she beheld
the hated tyrant sitting in his chair,
reading-lamp by his tide. What was
that? Maggie's heart stopped pumping
for very astonishment, for, snuggled
close in the tyrant's arms, as com
fortably as he ever lay in Maggie's
own, was the recreant Roderick, look
ing up into the tyrant's face with the
same fascinating good-night baby
ways that Maggie loved. And the ty
rantthe hated tyrant Maggie's eyes
almost swallowed up her , face, they
grew so large from looking, this same
tyrant was smiling down Into the baby
eyes as he softly crooned a lullaby.
The voice ceased singing, and the wor
ried look that ' Maggie had noticed
upon the face of the principal that
morning, returned. The intuition of
her. sex, stimulated by a somewhat
troubled conscience, told Maggie that
the worried, look, was 'one for which
she was responsible.. As if fearful that
she might be led to change her mind,
she bolted into the room, planted her
self In front of the astonished princi
pal, and explained ' somewhat inco
herently:
'Oh, sir, it was me that did it all!
I stirred 'em up, I did. They'd never a
one of 'em dared do it without; they
said so thelrselves. And when the caps
came, they'd everyone of 'em backed
out, but I called 'em cowards. And it
was then I lost the baby, and I wished
I'd never been born before I ever
heard of a strike or a union, sir. And
then you found him, and cuddled him
up for the night Just as he likes to bo
cuddled, and I'm' so. sorry, I made all
the trouble, and you don't need to
worry any more about the old strlks,
for I'll declare it all off to-morrow
morning, - and the kid that dare3 to
stay away, 111 I'll " and although.
Maggie's fervent voice and . earnest
eyes spoke volumes, the words were
interrupted by a strange choking in
her throat
If the reporters could have looked
into the Skelton school Just then, they
would have found abundant material
for a scoop, for the erstwhile leader
of the strike, as the pent-up emotions
of the day found vent in a veritable
Niagara of tears, felt herself drawn
close to the tyrant's tide, her he id
resting upon his Immaculate coat
sleeve, as he tenderly wiped away the
tears. l
When interviewed the next day as
to the settlement of the novel strike,
the principal only smiled a quiet t mile
and said: ;
"Yes, the strike Is settled, and I an
ticipate no further trouble. And the
medium .you , ask? x Well." and the
principal thoughtfully stroked hh
mustache) "you can tell the public that
it was accomplished through the me
dium of a board of arbitration, a very
small board, weighing in tho aggre
gate not over 60 pounds."
When pressed for details by the
curious newspaper men, - he pleaded

LETTER FR0L1 THE

at he first took service there at the age of 13. His rise from the humblest posi
tion in the senate, that of page, to the highest, that of leader of his party on
the floor, is another illustration of the possibilities ahead of young America. He
always had an ambition to be a senator even when he scurried around the
chamber as a little page running errands for the senators. He was a protege
of Stephen A. Douglass and learned his first political lessons from that distin
guished man. By attention to his duties Mr. Gorman In 14 years that he was
employed by the senate, became in turn a messenger and assistant bookkeeper,
assistant postmaster and then postmaster of the senate.
Mr. Gorman was a baseball crank and in his young days belonged to the
famous Nationals of this city. The Nationals were often called the "Old
rioneers" because they were one of the first ball clubs in the country. Mr.
Gorman was right fielder for the Nationals. An account of a game played be
tween the "Pasttlmes" of Baltimore and the Nationals of Washington in 1863
gave great praise to young Gorman for his brilliant fielding and catching.

was very anxious to make a name for himself by some fine oratorical effort on
the floor. He asked Mr. Culberson to give him some suggestions and let him
know when it was advisable for him to "butt in," as it were, in debate. One
day Gen. Bingham, of Philadelphia, was in charge of a big appropriation bill In
which there were some strong provisions In the Interest of the old soldiers.
Culberson called Stallings to his seat and said:
"There's your chance, Jesse. You hear Bingham talking about the old
soldier? You just ask him what right he has to do so. Why he kept a grocery
store in Philadelphia during the war and never smelled powder?"
This was Stallings' opportunity,
startled the house by addressing Gen. Bingham thus: "What right have you
to champion the old soldier? You who never smelled powder except as you
sold it over a store counter? Let some man who has been to the front take
up their cause ."
Here the house burst into a roar of laughter and Gen. Bingham, who was
laughing louder than anyone else, walked over to StaHlngs with the congres
sional directory in his hand and pointed to his splendid war record as be said:
"Somebody has been putting up a Job on you, Stallings." ,
FLOODING CONGBESS WITH PETITIONS.
'. When
presidency
The effects of these petitions factories has resulted in millions of memorials
pouring in on both houses, 95 per cent of which are never signed' by the men
whose names appear on them. The labor organizations of the country are
worked completely in the matter of petitions- A representative of some organi
sation who is desirous of having a labor bill put through will send blank peti
tions to every lodge throughout the United States and the secretaries of those
lodges simply write the names of the members upon the petitions without con
sulting them. The same game is worked In church and religious societies and
through patriotic orders of various kinds.
. Speaker Cannon probably receives more petitions than-any other man, not
excepting the president Appeals are made to him as the one potent factor in
legislation. When these' machine-made petitions come pouring In "Uncle Joe"
scarcely gives them a thought, but when a letter or a telegram bearing the
stamp of individuality reaches him ha is sure to give it his 'consideration. The
tolegram form of petition is overworked also, and when 200 or 300 couched Jn
exactly the same language reach the speaker from different portions of the
country he knows at once that they have been inspired from the same source
and are probably paid for by one man. This destroys their efficacy,

THE SUICIDE OF REPRESENTATIVE ADAMS. -
The deliberation with which Mr.

would have been suspected of contemplating such an act He wat the last
man also who anybody would have thought had the nerve to decide upon thit
act before hand. Hit whole life hers In Washington had been-of such a butter
fly character and so at odds with the gruesome idea of shooting his braint out,
that the first report of hit suicide could scarcely be credited. It was not be
lieved he had the courage to Are a bullet into hit head. .
In the opinion of 8peaker Cannon and many who knew Mr. Adama hit sui
cide was an extraordinary courageous thing to do. He had exhausted all there
was in life, wat a bankrupt and wat lated for defeat in seeking a renomlnatlon
and wat threatened with cancer. He had nobody dependent upon him and
nothing evidently to live for; so that he wat not shirking any responsibilities
In shuffling off thit mortal coll. Looking at lt Ja thit way hit friends contidei

fJATIOUnL CAPITAL
WASHINGTON. A wide gap was . made in
the Democratic ranks In the senate when Arthur
Pue Gorman, of Maryland, died a few days ago.
There have " been few, more .forceful characters
among the Democrats in that body. He grew up
with the senate; knew all its traditions and re
garded it as the greatest legislative body in the
world. For many years Mr. Gorman was the
real, as well as titular, leader on the Democratic
side of the senate. It wat his genius that thought
out political schemes and It was hit management
that secured for the Democrats the most there
was in tho situation. His place will be difficult to
fill, as there are few men of bis temperament and
sagacity now on theCmlnority side of the senate.
Mr. Gorman was "almost born to the senate.
SOlf.
Senator Culberson Inherits his phlegmatic
temperament from his father, the late Judge or as
house from Texas. Old man Culberson was one
of the rich and rare characters In the house, a
man of great ability but averse to exercising It
unless absolutely pushed Into a contest. In his
later years of service he was regarded as the
nestor of young Democrats in the house and they
bll went to "Uncle Dave" for advice which he
freely gave. The old man, however, was an invet
erate practical Joker and some of the young fel
lows had cause to repent following his advice at
times.
A few years ago a young man came to the
house from Alabama named Jesse Stalllugs. He
and as soon as he got recognition he
.
John Qulncy Adams retired from the
and took up service In the house of
representatives one of his greatest achievements
was to preserve to tbe people the right of petition,
There was a disposition on the part of, some
members of congress to shut off this right but
through the efforts of Mr. Adams the privilege wat
retained and hat been enjoyed ever since. .Mr.
Adams little thought at the time he was lighting
for this right It would in the future be lightly re'
garded and used really as a franchise for a busi
ness enterprise. There has been established right
here In Washington agencies that undertake to
flood congress with petitions on almost any sub
ject They send out letters to parties Interested
in public measures and offer "to circularize . the
country by letter or wire" for so much money.
The recent suicide of Representative Adam'
of Pennsylvania, is the first Instance, so far as i.
known, of a member of the house taking his own
life. A few years ago Representative Chlckerlng,
of New York, was found lifeless on the sidewalk
outside a hotel in New York city having fallen
from hit ; bedroom window. It wat always a
doubt whether be fell by accident or threw him
self out with suicidal Intent There was no doubt,
however, about "Bertie" Adams' act and it stands
unique in the history of congress. Away back in
war timet Senator. Lane, of Kansas, committed
suicide during a recess of congress, but aside
from his case and that of Mr. Adams there it no
authentic record of any other member of elthtr
house having taken hit own life.

"HE RAN FOR LAWYER.".
But There Was a Doubt at to Whether
He Had Ever Caught

o
A man from Pennsylvania went to
Vlneland on a business errand. ' The
town was strange to blm, and he was
unacquainted with the man (a lawyer)
he bad gone to see. The directions he
received were so indefinite that he
found himself on the elge of the town
without having come to the house he
sought. Then he met an old negro
and asked the way of him and learned
that the house lay about a quarter of
a mile farther down the road.
"The man I want to see Is a law
yer, be said to tne oia man. is ww
Mr. Dash down the road a lawyer?"
"He ain't no lawyer that ,1 ever
heard tell of." answered the negro.
"You're sure?"
The old negro scratched his head in
deep thought. Then a gleam of re
membrance lighted his eye.
"Now I think of it, boss," be said,
" 'pears like I do recollect he ran for
lawyer one time."
